Salvation Army Quilt appeal for fire victims.

The Salvation Army of Winmalee put out an appeal asking for quilts to be donated. The quilts were for the recent fire victims in the Blue Mountains. This appeal was very successful and the Salvation Army collected over 1,038 quilts, sewing accessories and magazines. These goods were donated from all over Australia and New Zealand. The display of quilts were opened for public viewing in Falcounbridge last week. The Salvation Army displays the quilts for one day only prior to the going to their new home.  The generosity of people donating the quilts were awe inspiring and demonstrates how generous and giving quilters are.

One of the sheds filled with quilts.

Believe it or not this was a cheats appliqué, made stunning by creative machine quilting.

A great number of the quilts donated were hand quilted.

Well done to the quilters of Australia and New Zealand, a quilt made and donated with love and friendship.
